Lyrics
I bet by now
You prob'ly think I'm a puppet
To the man
Well, I'll tell you right now
You best believe that I am

Sometimes I'm stuck and then
I think I can't unglue it
Sometimes I'm stuck and then
I think I can't unglue it

This one goes out to all those
Who want the rat to survive
And of course by this
I am alluding I want him to die

My sister's stuck
And she don't think she can unglue it
Sometimes I get stuck in a rut, too
It's okay, girlfriend
Sometimes I'm in a rut so much
I don't want it to end

I bet by now
You prob'ly think I'm a puppet
To the man
Well, I shout it out loud
Because I know that I am

Sometimes I'm stuck
And then I think I can't unglue it
Will you help me do it?
Will you help me do it?
Will you help me do it?
